Final day of testimony at college basketball corruption trial reveals recruiting battle for Brian Bowen Jr. https://www.oregonlive.com/sports/index.ssf/2018/10/final_day_of_testimony_at_coll.html A government exhibit put in evidence showed a series of communications in May 2017 during which Dawkins asked Code if any Adidas schools were interested in Bowen, who also was being recruited by Nike-sponsored Oregon. Code texted back, "Don't send Bowen to Oregon. Call me." After the two spoke by phone, Dawkins texted Pitino: "Would you have any interest in Brian Bowen or are you done with recruiting?" Pitino responded: "We would love to have him." seems like the Ducks are gonna come out of this unscathed.
